  1. Quarantine Circular (PC) Another Mike Bothell 'short'. A short science fiction text adventure game playable in pretty much one sitting. I liked it a lot. Apparently there are different options/endings according to what decisions you take, but I haven't explored any of that yet.
  2. Tacoma (PC) Really enjoyed this. It was an interesting story, and I found it more engaging to play than Gone Home. Princess Remedy In A World Of Hurt (PC) A short (around 40 mins), freebie retro console-style adventure game. I think it might have originally been a game jam project. A pleasant little diversion with charming 8-bit-style looks
  3. Yeah, I enjoyed the story, but the writing not so much. Some of the mini-game stuff wasn't great either, especially the upgrade crafting bit. I enjoyed it through, I like the themes and setting. I'd recommend games like 2046: Read Only Memories or VA-11 HALL-A ahead of this.
  4. What Remains Of Edith Finch (PC) The Red Strings Club (PC) Pikuniku (PC) Pikuniku is a fun, cute, short adventure thing. It's funny, well written, with a great fun soundtrack. All of these were freebies. I should play some of the games I paid for at some point.
  5. I've finished it on PS2 and PS3, and I'm really tempted to get it again on PC. It's one of my favourite games, but there's no denying it's really slow to get started, and waaaaay longer than it needs to be.
  6. Undecided as yet if we'll be going this year for a number of factors: - The move from Brimingham to London makes it a lot more expensive for us. - ExCel kind of sucks. - I'm getting married about 6 weeks before, will probably be skint.
  7. The PC version has gone really cheap on CDkeys, (possibly because the game is now 'free' on EA Access?), so I bought it and played the single player. It's great, the movement is so fun. I tried the multi, and it seemed pretty good, but I was just confused for a lot of it.
  8. I haven't got anything to add, but Doom-Switch would be an awesome name for a game.
  9. Wolfenstein : The Old Blood (PC) Started it on Friday evening, finished it on Saturday, about 6-7 hoursc in total. Shorter, and more focused than The New Order. This prequel/expansion was a fun, fairly straightforward bit of extra Wolfenstein which lead into the story of the first game quite nicely.
  10. Diablo III (PC) I had a lot of time on my hands and not much to do, being off work sick this week. This was a great way to pass time while listening to podcasts.
  11. Moirai (PC) Diablo III: The Darkening of Tristram (PC) The Wolf Among Us episode 1 : Faith (PC) The Wolf Among Us episode 2 : Smoke and Mirrors (PC) The Wolf Among Us episode 3 : A Crooked Mile (PC) The Wolf Among Us episode 4 : In Sheep's Clothing (PC) The Wolf Among Us episode 5 : Cry Wolf (PC) Hitman (PC) Silent Assassin on all episodes Torment : Tides of Numenera (PC) Full Trottle Remastered (PC) Aaero (PC) Neon Drive (PC) Wolfenstein: The New Order (PC) Life Is Strange episode 1 : Chrysalis (PC) Life Is Strange episode 2 : Out of Time (PC) Life Is Strange episode 3: Chaos Theory. (PC) Life Is Strange episode 4: Dark Room. (PC) Life Is Strange episode 5: Polarized (PC) Rez Infinite (PC) Subsurface Circular (PC) Persona 5 (PS3) 2064: Read Only Memories (PC) VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action (PC) It's a visual novel with a simple drink mixing mini game. You make the drinks as requested and listen to the customers stories, apparently making different drinks can affect the way they react to you and the endings you get. I'm not sure how much that matters. The story is enjoyable, and pretty well written. I like several of the characters. It's slightly anime-styled, but doesn't go all out, so you don't feel like a creepy loser pervert for playing it. The soundtrack is excellent, before each night's work you load up the jukebox with a dozen songs. There were easily more I liked than the jukebox could hold. https://garoad.bandcamp.com/album/va-11-hall-a-second-round XCOM: Enemy Within (PC) Enemy Unknown was one of my favourite games from the last 5 years. This expansion adds a lot of good stuff to it. The additional set of story missions are welcome enough, but the addition of cybernetic and genetic enhancement for your soldiers, plus a whole bunch of new enemies are what made it for me.
  12. I bought one yesterday on Amazon Prime Now, just on the spur of the moment, and got it by lunch time. It's a fun little thing to have sitting under the tv, and play around with. Apparently the internals are near identical to the NES classic, so I expect people will br able to hack it and add extra games pretty soon.
  13. The Joypod folks (minus Michael) are back with a new one called The Computer Game Show. http://spong.com/podcasts/computergameshow/
  14. I read Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits last month, it revels in being brash and funny in the same way John Dies at the End did. The bad guy is a complete dick. Stupidly, entertainingly so.
  15. I finished The Unnoticables yesterday. I enjoyed it a lot. It's a funny, crude, gory sci-fi/horror that I'd definitely recommend to people who liked stuff like John Dies At The End.
